Nigerians ignite #MeToo campaign as Busola Dakolo makes damning allegations against COZA Pastor

Could this be the moment for Nigeria’s #MeToo movement? Following increasing rape and philandering allegations against the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, (COZA) in Abuja, Biodun Fatoyinbo, Nigerians on social media have glocalised the #MeToo movement to encourage victims of rape and sexual harassment speak up against their abusers.

The #MeToo hashtag which was launched in the United States, came into prominence in October 2017 and was adopted by women from all over the world to share their story of sexual harassment.

The hashtag started trending worldwide after a call to action from American actress Alyssa Milano in the wake of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s downfall over allegations of sexual misconduct spanning decades.

A few years after the hashtag gained global prominence, Nigerians on social media on Friday adopted the #MeToo hashtag to call on rape and sexual assault victims to speak up in the wake of rape allegation by Busola Dakolo against the classy and fashionista Abuja-based preacher.

While some believe it is time for rape victims to start speaking out, others have used the hashtag to also hint on their rape experience
